Populations, Polarities and Holons:
The views presented in this tape are isomorphic with the idea of dualistic monism as exhibited in the ancient traditions of Shinto and Tao in Japan and China. Spatial entities are looked at hierarchically following Koestler’s invented word “holon.”An example is given showing that from a hierarchical view the states of order and disorder are two aspects of the same thing. Author William Irwin Thompson is founder of the Lindisfarne Association.
The Lindisfarne Tapes are selected recordings of presentations and conversations at the Lindisfarne Fellows’ meetings. In March of 2013 William Thompson granted permission to the Schumacher Center for a New Economics to transfer the talks from the old reel-to-reel tapes to digital format so that they could be posted online and shared freely. Reposting should include acknowledgment of williamirwinthompson.org.
